He didn't go home! Why didn't he go home? He was tired, he has a beautiful wife, was welcomed by his king, I even sent him meat to enjoy. So why didn't he go home! When I asked him he said 'The ark and Israel and Judah are staying in tents, and my master Joab and my lord's men are camped in the open fields. How could I go to my house to eat and drink and lie with my wife? As surely as you live, I will not do such a thing!' So he has to stay with the men, like he is some sort of hero? Damn him! If it is good enough for his king to stay at home then why not him? Does he consider himself better than his king? What gives him the right to mock me, fool of a man! I have fought many battles and killed many men. I have been Gods chosen one for years and been appointed king and leader of Israel! And he mocks me?!

I must get hold of myself! I cannot allow this secret to get out and dishonour God in the eyes of my people and our enemies.

I will throw another party, except this time there will be just Uriah and me. Yes! I will get him drunk, get him off guard, then send him home to the comfort of his beautiful wife. He won't be able to resist such temptation when he is drunk, what man could? Yes this time, this time it will work. Then I will be free...
